Good News- Bad News O ne of the best days of my life was the day one of my professolS called to say that I had been accepted to study for a year at the University of the Sorbonne in Paris. I had never traveled much, and I didn't think I would ever have the chance to go to Europe. The news came one ahernoon in May of 1993. I was just 19 yealS old and I was in my room at college. Just before the call, a friend of mine came into my room, threw herself into a chair, and burst into tears. She had had plans to get married in June, but her boyfriend had just broken up with her' At that very moment the phone rang. So there I was listening to the best news of my life, while my friend was crying over the waISt news in helS. My professor said, '''M1a(s the matter? Aren't you excited?' I said, ''Yes, I am, but I'll tell you about it later:' I did my best to console my friend, but it was really hard for me to be sympathetic while I was so happy about my news. Finally I couldn't stand rt anymore. I said to my friend, "Stay here. I have to go out for a few minutes:' I went out and got a big pizza, a quart of chocolate ice cream, and a big bottle of soda. ''You and I are going to have a feast" I said, and then I told her my news. That friend was a much happier pelSon when she leh. I went to France and had a wondenul year. I studied hard, became fluent in French, traveled, and met many wondenul people. When I came back I ran into my friend. Although she'd been deeply hurt by the break up with her boyfriend, she had also had a good year at school and was about to leave for graduate school.
